Graph Description and Survey Results
The graphs generated here are from two different viewpoints. One viewpoint is from the perspective of major in college and the other viewpoint is by gender. The graphs were rated by producing a scale from 1 to 3. The value of 1 means that the definition given was not acceptable or incorrect, the value of 2 means that the definition given was somewhat acceptable or somewhat correct, and the value of 3 means that the definition given was acceptable or correct. To determine the value of the definitions of the participants a dictionary was used for the comparisons. The dictionary used was Websterís New World Dictionary. The score was then change into a percent to show the average degree of correct or acceptable answers per major or per gender. Hence, the graphs represent the degree of closeness that each department or gender came to getting all of the definitions correct and it also represents the total combined degree of answers that were incorrect or unacceptable as a whole for all of the majors or genders participating.
